Coaching Research: a review of progress internationally since 2008

Dr Sunny Stout-Rostron and Dr Lew Stern, senior advisor at the Institute of Coaching (Harvard McLean Medical School Affiliate) conducted an extensive and exhaustive survey of all research done internationally in the field of coaching.

In 2008, 100 topics/proposal for research were identified by the International Coaching Research Forum after the Global Coaching Convention held in Dublin in 2007.  These could be roughly grouped into 16 focus areas.  Sunny and Lew looked at how research globally has progressed between 2008 and 2012 against these 16 focus areas.

They presented their finding in an international tele-conference with the International Coach Federation’s Research Portfolio Committee in August 2013.  Click here to listen   You can also read an executive summary of their research Coaching Research Progress Stern & Stout-Rostron Jan 13
